Vibrant Decorations: a Trend to Liven up your Home

Last update: 14 January, 2019

Vibrant decorations are a great way to bring your home to life. Including small, colorful details in your interior decor helps to create a dynamic space, that no one could ever mistake for boring or plain.

There are many different ways to bring a touch of vitality to your home. One way to do this is to use color. Nowadays, there are many decorating trends which favor the use of pale colors, such as the Nordic style.

There is also the all-white trend. As the name suggests, it involves the use of this color throughout every aspect of the interior decor. However, in using only one – pale – color, you run the risk of creating a bland and boring environment.

As a result, it’s common to add colorful elements when decorating with these styles to help break the monotony. In this article, we’ll tell you how to include vibrant decorations to liven up your home.

What are vibrant colors?

Obviously, before we go into this topic in greater detail, it’s important to know which colors we consider to be vibrant. Firstly, when we talk about vibrant colors, we are referring to intense, bright, solid colors. This excludes colors such as pastel tones, for example.

So, by vibrant colors we mean: magenta, blue, yellow, green, red, orange etc. These are bold, daring colors, which – depending on your point of view and personal taste – you should really only use for small decorative details, rather than to decorate an entire room.

Use vibrant colors in small decorative elements, rather than to decorate the entire room.

Where t0 use vibrant decorations?

The use of vibrant colors shouldn’t be restricted to one area of the house in particular. In fact, it can be used in almost any room in the house. The only thing you need to consider is which decorative elements you want to include.

For example, if you want to add a brightly colored lamp, but you already have two lamps, it doesn’t make much sense to add a third, even if it is a different color. You need to include vibrant colors in small decorative elements, in a sensible and logical way, and without repeating other elements.

A good way to do this is to use vibrant colors in the following elements:

  • Textiles: this is always a good option if you want to add a touch of color to your home, and bring your bedrooms, living rooms and bathrooms to life.
  • Decorative elements: vases, paintings, and photo frames, for example, are all great allies when it comes to using vibrant colors in your interior decor.
  • Tableware: when it comes to kitchens, a good way to introduce a touch of color is through the tableware. For example, you could use bowls and plates, glasses, mugs, utensils etc. This is a really subtle way to brighten up your room.

The impact of vibrant colors

Using small, vibrant decorations is one of the best ways to decorate if you’re not a fan of colorful decor. These subtle touches will only enhance your room, and won’t take anything away from your decor.

Firstly, vibrant colors will really brighten up your rooms. Plus, they can actually improve your mood, as these types of colors can create feelings of joy and happiness.

What’s more, vibrant colors can add more volume to your rooms, stopping them from looking plain, boring or bland. In fact, using these colors in your interior decor can also convey lots of other sensations, like freshness and modernity.

These colors are perfect for brightening up your home. The main advantage is that, by introducing small, subtle details into your decor, you can easily change them for new elements when you get bored of them.

Because you don’t need to use a huge amount of color, this trend is perfect for those who love decorating with simple lines and very little color.

Vibrant decorations are becoming more and more common in decorative styles such as Nordic and minimalist trends. In other styles, such as oriental decor, we commonly see that red and black are the main colors used.

One misconception relating to vibrant colors is that using them will make your rooms look overwhelming, or even childish. However, as we’ve said before, to achieve and elegant and subtle look, you should incorporate colors by identifying key, eye-catching elements that you don’t yet have in your room.
